Hi fellas, here are some pics of what I've been working on. It's from Auslowe in Australia. It's coming together well so far. Enjoy

They used to be double framed but I've been shown that the frames are now deeper, and thicker. Typical road train spec would run a 600hp engine, 18 speed box, Rockwell 6 rod, also heavier front axle. Cheers Ben

Also this is based on a lonestar kit.

Nice one Ben, looks great so far,

What colours are you planning?

 

 

A little tip for you, check the exhaust out before committing to paint, the roof fowls a little with the exhaust pipe, and you may need to mod it a little

Supposed to be a cummins signature 600, but it's only a basic representation. Auslowe includes a cummins tapper cover in the transkit. Looks good enough to me. Auslowe also does a complete cummins signature 600. Cheers

I plan to paint it red chassis, red and white cab with red and white pinstripe. Cheers for the tip for the exhaust.

Looks like your off to a good start.  Something different as well. We don't see many Australian spec vehicles on the forum.

I don't think the cab will fit the w900 bonnet from p&p resin. There is a difference in width between the amt t600 cab and this cab. Cheers
